Subject: Fun Criminal Hijinks
The stories are adventure stories centered around a morally ambiguous thief. Not stellar, but fun. Occasionally, Raffles is as arbitrary and infuriating as ever Sherlock Holmes was.

Subject: One of the better Librivox recordings out there
Wonderful reading by Kristin Hughes, and very good sound quality also. No distracting background noises to be heard, and consistently smooth. Ms. Hughes is an excellent reader, and her narration flows smoothly without stumbling over big words, as many others do.. I would have guessed this was a professional recording, it's that good! The book itself is a good read also ~ as engaging as any of the Sherlock Holmes stories. Very highly recommended.

Subject: Subtle, funny and engaging
Not quite a "caper" book. Raffles is an action hero who is too much a gentleman to break a sweat.

Works in progress on the LibriVox site are not for public download - the server is for audiobook production only and could not stand the strain. Please wait until the finished project is available for public download here. Thanks!

Subject: Interesting stories, very good recording
This book is a bit grimmer than the first Raffles collection. It has the same reader, who continues to give an excellent reading. The sound quality strikes me as excellent too. (I'm looking forward to the completion of the third book, A Thief in the Night, by the same reader. The first few stories are available now on the Librivox site, including "The Criminologists' Club," my favorite of the stories so far.)
